I love this one, its throwing it down too apparently, I got the boot from a girl on the morning of this race 5 years ago, I never remember the exact date just where it coincides with the cycling calendar. A few hours later I was drowning my sorrows then going absolutely mad at Stannard's win through the tears, my favourite finish ever.
Will be interesting to see what Quinn Simmons can show here. It's rumored he's been training like a mad man during winter, already had some top 10 finishes in La Provence, a lot of the "top dogs" are not quite in top form yet, and the race is only 200k, so not too long. Weather conditions shouldn't bother him either, he became worldchampion in similar conditions.
